They were both just involved in that goal but I really think both Ozil & Ramsey need to be sold...

Ozil - too damned lazy. He has been invisible this entire match. Even the goal he was involved in was a cluster because he played a bad ball to Ramsey.

Ramsey - is a "MF" that refuses to play MF. He continually leaves the MF/DF in a bad position. He either needs to be sold or converted to a much higher role (RW?).


Cant really disagree. Will be hard to sell Ozil with his current contract.

With that said Center Back is still the biggest issue.

I also would not mind seeing Bellerin sold as well.
I could might be persuaded with Ramsey, but the club should not sell Ozil.

I know its super chic to complain about Ozil, and he's not played his best and something doesn't seem perfectly right with him right now, but the focus on him has taken on a true outsized life of its own.

For a team that wants to play from the back, he routinely is the guy who is able to drop back deeper and link the field together and he's the guy who often has been best able to create something up the field.

Reports surfacing that we have withdrawn our contract offer to Ramsey and will attempt to sell him in Jan or let him leave on a free.

Bummed that we are going to lose him since he is one of my favorite players. We just need to get him out of England at this point. It does seem we are shoehorning him into the side at the 10 and pushing Ozil out wide. If we can get a proper winger in January to replace, we'll be better off.

My wife will be mad as he had replaced Giroud as her favorite player to look at

The management of this club remains a complete joke. To have allowed these contract situations to occur with Rambo, Ozil, and Sanchez in such short order is ridiculous. You cant complain about the cost of players out of 1 side of your mouth and then allow these contracts to run down out the other.

I tend to agree. Ultimately this issue was brought on by allowing the Wenger saga to drag out for too long. Alexis & Ozil were holding off from signing an extension because they wanted to see what would happen with Wenger. AW is re-signed and both stalled in negotiations. Had we not given AW an extension. We either would have had all of these guys tied up earlier or (if they didn't like the new coach) they likely would have been sold without the drama.

Seeing claims that we rejected a 50m GBP offer from ManU for Ramsey this summer. If true, I'm a little upset we rejected it. We likely could have gotten a couple additional players for that.

Not to mention 20 million for Welbz who will also be leaving for free.

With us playing both PAE & Laca together and Welbz getting more minutes than expected, I wonder if we try to extend him before Jan . That said, we probably would have been better off had we sold him and added a couple young wing/ST types this summer.

Glad to see Holding in there. Wish it was for Mustafi - guess Sokratis leg wasnt ready.

Cech limping off with hamstring just before half. Leno on. Opportunity to prove himself.

Still not exactly a comfortable lead with our defense

Also, Leno should be starting

Ozil might have been the best player on the field today. Hope we get a few more of those in the next games and can start to put that story line behind us.

Miki is not making the trip to Qarabag due to the war between Armenia and Azerbaijan

Yep, apparently he and his family decided against applying for the special visa he would need to enter Azerbaijan. I assume they are concerned about his security.

At any rate, it seems like, if we are to make the final, UEFA, Arsenal, and others are prepared to do what is needed to get him the visa.

So with all of our defensive problems, we are only 4 points off the top of the EPL table after having played #1 and #3. That's actually a lot better than I expected

I guess the question is that are we being really lucky to grind out 3 points in these close games or are we significantly better at winning close games

Yeah I don't really know...I don't think we've played a solid complete game yet so I'll lean positive in that we are learning to grind things out

Interesting. Little outside Emery's norm. Can't say I'm disappointed to see him try something against a weaker squad.
